FANTASY IMPROMPTU OP. 66 C SHARP MINOR URTEXT PIANO
Chopin; Ed: Paul Badura-Skoda & Akira Imai
This edition features fold-out pages, which facilitate convenient page-turns. The musical text is based on Chopin’s autograph manuscript. Includes a detailed preface (in Eng./Ger.), critical commentary (German only), and the appendix includes the Impromptu Op.89 of Ignaz Moscheles for comparison (both works use similar thematic material, which might explain why Chopin chose not to publish this work during his lifetime).

FANTASY OP. 28 B MIN URTEXT PIANO
CONCERTO NO 5 OP. 22 D VIOLIN & PIANO
CONCERTO NO 2 OP. 21 F MINOR 2 PIANOS 4 HANDS URTEXT
Written in 1900, this is a single sonata-form movement which bridges the gap between the Third Sonata and the Fourth Sonata. The virtuosic style is close to that of the Third Sonata. The brooding opening gives way to one of Scriabin’s inspired second subjects which is sustained for twenty-six bars. Noticeable are the touches of the canonic treatment. The third theme is close in its massive confidence and chromatic harmony to the world of the Third Symphony. The recapitulation was later expanded and rescored. The emotional line rides on through a long coda, a device used later in the Seventh Sonata.
Friedrich Seitz was born in Germany in 1848. Although we know that he was an accomplished violinist, there is not too much else that is known about him. He composed a few works, and this is his most popular. It offers quite a challenge to the violinist with rhythmic passages, quick finger changes, and many tempo changes. It is a work that should be pursued by all violin players.

CHACONY VIOLIN & PIANO
Purcell; Arr. Fischer
Simon Fischer (author of Basics and Practice) provides a fresh take on this wonderful 17th-century theme, famously re-worked by Benjamin Britten. This arrangement follows in the tradition of the romantic violin transcriptions of the 19th and 20th centuries, and is intended to be played in a later style on modern instruments. It can also be played in more of a period style on baroque violin with harpsichord, in which case the suggested bowings, fingerings and dynamics can be adjusted accordingly.
